Exterior radon system neatly installed through each deck of this Chicago apartment building and exhausts above the roof. This home’s Home Owner’s Association wanted the system to be located on the backside of the home. We were very creative in our solution to meet the HOA’s requirements. This is a picture of the exterior exhaust with the fan underneath the deck and exhaust running along the downspout on the rear of the house. This photo shows the radon fan installed underneath a deck. The exhaust pipe has three supports that will provide superior wind durability even with severe storms that produce winds above 70 mph. 50/50 Four Pipe System unit with two equally sized heat exchangers, 50% system redundancy is provided during peak the heating and cooling seasons.
The inline fan features a mixed flow design using a stator blade and dual hydrodynamic wind circles. This gives it a high static pressure rating, enabling it to deliver airflow even in applications where air movement is being restricted. The motor houses dual ball bearings rated at 67,000 hours which allows the duct fan unit to be mounted in any direction. The unit is IP44 rated to be highly resistant to dust and liquids, and performs well even in harsh environments. Radon fan motors vary considerably in the noise they generate. Often a fan with higher wattage than required is used because the installer does not measure the depressurization induced under the slab. A lower wattage fan can almost always be installed in standard radon sub-slab depressurization systems if there is good aggregate under the slab and the slab does not have large open cracks or other unsealed openings.
The home can be tested with a short-term or a long-term radon test kit that can be obtained through the mail or at local hardware stores. The short-term tests remain in the home between 2 and 90 days and the long-term tests remain for longer than 90 days. If the radon level is higher than 4 picocuries per liter of air (pCi/L) the radon mitigation fan should be installed and activated. The installation instructions for the radon mitigation system should be followed carefully as improper installation of the system can actually increase radon levels in a home. A radon vertical ventilation pipe system installed in a home with a crawlspace foundation. Lay at least 5 feet of min. 3-inch diameter horizontal perforated pipe on the soil at the location where you will run the vertical ventilation pipe and connect it to either side of a vertical “T”. A radon vertical ventilation pipe system installed in home with a slab-on-grade foundation. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency publishes a map indicating likely radon levels across the United States and has established a maximum exposure limit of 4 picocuries per liter of indoor air.
If the system has only one suction hole the resistance of all the piping and fittings can be determined by the graphs below. The pressure drop is displayed in the graphs below for 100 equivalent feet of piping. The total equivalent footage is divided by 100 and then multiplied by the pressure drop of the piping size and airflow rates of the graph below.

By pairing a ceiling fan with a portable or window air conditioner, it is possible to cool an entire floor of your house. Maximize your heating and cooling efficiency with indoor ceiling fans to save money on electricity.
Air Flow Noise – Due to airflow speed through the pipe or under membranes. As each meter of pipe drops the air pressure by 7 Pa, then just after 7 meters of pipe the air pressure would be 0 – essentially neutral to the surrounding air. This practice describes methods for reducing radon entry into existing attached and detached residential buildings three stories or less in height. The methods described in this practice apply to currently occupied or formerly occupied residential buildings. Elevated levels of radon have been found in homes built in all three zones on EPA’s Map of Radon Zones. Consult your state radon program for current information about radon in your area. Go to EPA’s radon website and click on your state for contact information. Install an electrical junction box for powering the fan and add the fan to the vertical pipe run. Install rigid foam insulation over the polyethylene and seal the gap between the insulation and the flange with expanding foam.
To get the best out of this article, we advise you to go through the full article. I hired someone to install a new Broan NuTone bathroom vent fan . He should have told me that I have a 3 inch exhaust out the roof and the fan I bought was 4 inch. But he did not tell me and installed it anyway, attaching a 3 inch flex duct to the fan using only duct tape. The fan is not quiet and makes a slight rasping sound which I really can’t tolerate. (When the duct is not attached, the fan is very quiet so it’s not the motor). The Remora stove fan creates a good air flow without being too noisy and disturbing what you are doing. With its hard wearing satin black anodised finish the Remora looks just as stylish as its predecessors. It is suitable for use with all flue pipes that have magnetic attraction and will fit onto most 10-17cm flue pipes.
Another method, a little bit better, is if you have a gable-style roof and a gable vent on one end of the house, you can attach this to the back of a gable vent. TB6575A, TB6575B, and TB8575A are a family of Digital Fan-Coil thermostats, that provide line/low voltage on/off control for various fan-coil units in residential and commercial applications.

The fan motor is field-replaceable, eliminating the need to replace the entire unit if the motor ever fails.
Selecting a fan to operate at conditions other then standard air requires adjustment to both static pressure and brake horsepower. Soapstone or Gas stoves don’t get their top surface as hot as wood or pellets stoves. Many Heat powered electric fans start working at pretty low temperature like 60 Centigrade which is easily achievable by gas stoves. However those fans’ optimal operating temperature is at top or even beyond the temp range of that kind of stoves. There are a few models though that have their best operation temperature tailored to that range. Check for SmartFan marked with ‘LT’ or Caframo BelAir if your stove’s top doesn’t reach 200 C. Bear in mind to never leave those fans to work on hotter surface as this might damage the Peltier module. Stove fan equipped with such sophisticated devices could operate using nothing but the heat from the stove, which is great because that means no added fuel costs. They work silently, and pose no health or environmental hazards. Some manufacturers even claim that their products reduce the total cost to operate the stoves, and reduce emissions by burning up to 14% less fuel.
During heavy rain, water comes out of the exhaust fan in my first floor bathroom. No, it’s never a good idea to have any exhaust fan in your home dump all that hot, moist air in your attic. It can cause you a lot of problems with mold and mildew forming on the underside of your rafters and decking as well as getting into your insulation.
